Re: San Jose

Wow, not many fan club sales. Tickets still available in the 7th row 9 hours after start of the sale.
The arena is having a presale starting on Friday at 10AM for the masses that get venue emails, so seats should start to go quickly.

April 15th Concert

A quick note on the Wednesday night concert. It was very much like Monday night's concert. It started late, perhaps 10 minutes or so. I'm not sure if intermission was longer than scheduled or not. But the net effect was that they cut two songs, they finished about 11:25pm, about the same time as fin...

Merchandise Question

My daughter bought a shirt at Wednesday night's concert in Oakland at the Paramount. When she checked it this morning, she found a hole in the back of the shirt that cannot be disguised. Is there any way to get an exchange for a new shirt without a hole? Who would we contact? It would be a long driv...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Oakland, April 13, 14 & 15

Would someone who was at the Paramount on Monday or Tuesday please confirm whether or not it's possible to pick up "fan club" priced tickets at 6pm (5:50pm!) and then leave to have dinner and be readmitted back in for the show? Someone had posted that once you pick up your tickets you can't leave t...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Oakland, April 13, 14 & 15

. A friend who went last night (Monday 4/13) said that "Conspiracy of Beards" was nowhere to be found at the lobby pre-show event. Does anyone have an update as to whether they will be at tonight's and/or tomorrow's show? Thank you. Huh? They were wandering all over the street outside the box offic...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Oakland, April 13, 14 & 15

I was slightly disappointed about no real new songs. In replaying my conversation with Bob, he may not have precisely said "new songs tonight", but may have meant they are playing new songs from the earlier legs of the tour, as we had talked about that and the CD/DVD. In that context, they are doing...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Oakland, April 13, 14 & 15

Show hasn't started yet. Talked to Bob Metzger during the early entry. He said there would be a few new songs tonight. Also that they tour another year. Another NA tour in Oct, after Europe, Istanbul, south Africa, maybe some others I forgot. What a nice guy. He was just standing alone so we chatted...

Got 4th row seats last night.

I was on a business trip in Japan most of this week. I was in the air at 10am on Thursday, and wasn't even aware of the 3rd oakland show. I found out on Thursday evening, and found the presale link, I checked it out about 8pm and was able to get 2 seats in Row D! Awesome for coming so late to the pa...

You can get VIP tickets right now in Row F if you can stomach the $549.

Re: Paramount Theater Oakland 4/13 Info

I too got in right at 10 with two tickets in Row K, far right side. No password issue, I copied/pasted the password from the announcement to save the time of typing it in. Just for fun, I tried to get two more after completing the purchase and tickets were available in row FF. (I didn't complete thi...
